What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup. A non-invasive solution to over plucked, thinning or sparse eyebrows, that creates natural beautiful eyebrows with a handheld microblading tool. It's perfect for people who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.
Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unike traditional tattooing, which uses a michine, microblading artist apply each hairstroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hair stroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client's exisiting eyebrow hair.
Microblading typically takes two appointments to complete. In the first appointment, the client is profiled and the eyebrows are drawn on with a waterproof pencil, so the artist and client can agree on the look. The artist then microblades the eyebrows,advises you on the aftercare, and then you are ready to go back into the world. There is some mild itching and in some cases flaking during the healing process. However, with proper aftercare, your microblading should be completely healed in 30 days.
The second appointment is a touch up at least 30 days after the first session. This allows enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and the color to settle into your skin. In the touch up appointment, the artist can see how your skin has retained the ink and make any necessary correction.
Sometimes a client's skin undertones may have unexpected effects on the ink's color. This is why the follow up appointment in 4-8 weeks is an essential part of the process, as everyone's skin is different and receives ink differently.

Before Your Appointment
The following restrictions are to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition for an amazing microblading procedure.
Please Read Carefully

- Plan to set aside 2-3 hours for your appointment.
Shower and wash your hair before your appointment as you won't be able to get your wet for 3 days.
- Please do not work out the day of the procedure as the body heat will expand the pores.
- Avoid heavy sunlight and especially sunburn 7 days before procedure.
- Do not drink more then one cup of coffee or anything with caffeine the day of the procedure.
- DO NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Ibuprofen, Omega-3 or fish oil unless medically necessary, 48-72 hours prior to the procedure. (Tylenol or acetaminophenis okay).
- Do Not drink alcohol 24 hours before the procedure.
The following treatments should be avoided within 2-4 weeks of the procedure:
- Botox or other fillers
- Chemical Peels
- Laser treatments.
Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 3 days after your procedure. Apply healing ointment sparingly 2 to 3 times a day as needed. Please be careful not to bury your eyebrows into your pillow while your sleeping. We recommend sleeping on your back if possible. No exercise or increased sweating for 7 days.
After 3 days, you may gently wash your eyebrows with a light face wash or soap(Aveeno, cetaphil, etc..). This can be done once at night time. If you are continuing to use ointment please be sure to use the ointment sparingly, as your skin needs to heal itself.
The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure
- Practicing sports
- Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
- UV Tanning or direct sunlight
- Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
- Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
- Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
- Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
- Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with clean hands or a Qtip
- Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.
During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath. Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. Do not itch or pick microbladed area. You may tap lightly with your finger tip to alleviate any itching. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day.
Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period, brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, customer develop bald spots or lose original hair stroke which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s is the reason why most customers need a touchup after 4 weeks.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it may look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure.
Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.
Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.
You can now enjoy your beautiful new temporary eyebrows.
